Drew & Napier’s data protection and privacy team sits within our technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) practice group.
Our work in data protection precedes the advent of the Personal Data Protection Act. Our expertise extends beyond general data protection law to sectoral frameworks, in particular, in the TMT, financial, and healthcare sectors.
We have been at the forefront of data protection laws in Singapore, given that we were involved with the Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) / Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) in setting up the implementing data protection laws in Singapore. We continue to represent the IMDA/PDPC in advisory, enforcement and policy work. We also regularly act for a wide range of clients on a variety of data protection matters, including the implementation of group-wide data protection compliance programmes, the localisation of global data privacy policies, data protection training programmes, advising companies on dealing with data breaches, conducting regulatory risk audits, and addressing ad hoc queries.
